January 17, 2014 – Universal Lighting Technologies is kicking off the new year with new corporate headquarters, which it says will position the company for greater growth and include leading designs and state-of-the-art technologies from all members of the Panasonic Lighting Americas group.
“Universal Lighting has seen significant growth over the past few years since we joined the Panasonic family,” said Chris Holstein, vice president of marketing. “We’re excited to start the next chapter in our company’s future as we make the move to a new home where the lighting technology reflects the very products that have led to our success.”
The new corporate headquarters will be 51 Century Blvd., suite 230 in Nashville, Tenn.
LED technologies in the facility include LED downlights that use Everline LED drivers and chip on board LED modules with 0–10V dimming controls. Existing recessed troffer lighting fixtures were upgraded with LED retrofit kits and Everline linear LED modules to provide high efficiency lighting with high quality colour while being dimmable, said the company. Universal Lighting’s Demandflex ballasts, six-lamp T8 fixtures and VariPRO 0–10V dimming are also incorporated. As well, a dialogue control system and occupancy sensors from Panasonic’s Douglas Lighting Controls are featured in the new headquarters for local zone control, manual overrides and facility scheduling.
